Another Lion to carry tackle bags?

November 20, 2012 in Uncategorized

Lions loosehead prop has been called up to the Bok squad as CJ van der Linde heads home with an injury (again). The belated call up for JC means that he probably only join his Lions team mates in carrying tackle bags.

In other Lions news:

The Blue Bulls has released Lionel Cronje from his contract and he will join the Lions for 2013 although, should they need to, the Bulls can call him up during Super Rugby.

  1. Deserved call-up, gets to have a taste of the Bok environment, and opens the door for future chances. A foot in the door is all you need.

  2. It would have been good to see JC scrum against the boys up north. At the moment SA doesnt have to many great tightheads, and it would have been great seen how he handled himself against some of the best in europe.
    But HM needs big guys to hold the tackle bags, for all those big players he has selected.

  3. Agree unless there is another injury he won’t make the 23 on Sa.
    Maybe if Gathro gets injured he might sneak a place on the bench.
